Over the weekend, Good Morning America host Ginger Zee and her family had quite the scare when someone stabbed her husband’s tire on his car. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but her husband, Ben Aaron, blasted the culprit in an Instagram post about the incident on Saturday.
Aaron is also a New York-based media personality, similar to his famous wife. The couple have been married since 2014, and share two young sons together, Adrian and Miles. Over the weekend, the family went out together and couldn’t have foreseen what would occur during their travels.
Aaron shared a post with his more than 125,000 Instagram followers explaining what happened. The unfortunate situation could’ve been much worse, but he was able to get his wife and their two children home safely. He didn’t realize his car had been tampered with at first, and has no idea who may have slashed his tire. After getting home safely, Aaron gave a facetious “shout out” to the person who committed the crime.
The Good Morning America host’s husband shared a photo of the damaged tire. You can’t really see the slash marks on the tire, but you can see that the car is strapped onto a tow truck. Aaron said he’s thankful that the car didn’t experience a “blow out” while he drove the car. However, he did make light of the situation when reporting his bathroom break while waiting.
“Shout out to the human excrement who stabbed my tire. Thankfully no blow out, got the kids and Ginger home safe. First time peeing in a water bottle while waiting for a tow truck! Thanks for coaching me on that dad!” the Good Morning America host’s husband wrote on Instagram.
‘Good Morning America’ Host’s Family Is Lucky to Come Away Unscathed
The Good Morning America host didn’t address the incident on her own social media feed. But her husband followed his previous post up with another update later that same day.
Ben Aaron’s second post featured a photo of a sharp metal object allegedly used to slash his tire. The object is small and jagged, but clearly did enough damage despite its size. The media personality wrote that he pulled the “beauty” out of his Tesla’s tire. Additionally, he said he found out that Tesla automobiles are frequently targeted. Evidently, many owners of the vehicles have dealt with similarly unfortunate situations in recent history.
“Pulled this beauty out of the tire just now,” Aaron wrote on Instagram. “Learned that Teslas are prone to getting keyed and slashed. Not really sure why. All I know is i was fine with the whole situation until I woke up at 3am and realized that this could have been a serious problem if I didn’t pull over immediately. It could have hurt my family. So to the f–k stain that did this, I hope people are a little more kind to you than you were to us.”
